it is however. the same happened to me.you just need to run

cabal install pcre-light --extra-include-dirs=/opt/local/include

My location is /opt/local, since I installed pcre via macports

sudo port install pcre

Bue I think pcre is installed by default in


Just check it out and report back.

Good luck,
